Owned my 97 RRV since 1998 after the first owner put 3k miles on it. Having now done 21k with a few mods later, I will never sell my fireblade. Owned R1's, GSXR's, supermotos etc but this bike always seems to delight. First mod was a VFR 17" front wheel, excellent choice. Now I run a set of MAG Dymags, RC45 front forks and yokes. Billet 6 calipers with PFM discs. Ohlins damper with Harris bracket, Ohlins rear shock and PFM disc. 1998 stainless downpipes with a stubby and Ti Vance and Hines pipe. Harris rearsets and Dunlop D208RR tyres are the best suited since the D207RR, tried many others but I like these overall. Internals are TTS finest with Bigbore JE pistons, flowed and polished, HRC cam with dynoed 41mm flatslides, the result is a sweet handling 158bhp 97 Fireblade that on the road the only thing that can slow you down is YOU !
